TWO local men have taken leading roles in the county following last month's election.

Councillor Bernard Lloyd, who represents Harpenden North East, has been elected chairman of the county council and Stuart Nagler, a former Mayor of Hertsmere, has been re-elected as chair of the Herts Police Authority.

A long-standing Harpenden resident, Cllr Lloyd was first elected to the county council in 1997 and served as chairman of the health scrutiny committee for three years.

Born in Wales, he moved to Harpenden after he married in 1972 and worked as a chartered, certified accountant employed by the county council earlier in his career. He then progressed through a number of increasingly high-profile posts to become chief executive of the Royal College of Physicians.
